Hello Marc,

I have a similar setup with a 64 bit machine.

My liine in hba_conf looks like this

host 	all 		all		md5

And I can connect from 32 bit and Windows using QGIS and ODBC.

The specific error I get is "FATAL: no_pg.conf entry for host "10.0.xxx.xxx", user "Editor", database "postgis20", SSL off."  I modified postgresql.conf so that the listen_addresses  is set to *, and made sure that ssl is set to off.  In addition I added a line in pg_hba.conf  for type host, database all, user all, IP-address *.
